The hills are alive!

This morning we took a Sound of Music tour that was awesome - it was us, another family, and our guide in a beautiful little VW van thing. Our guide, Manfred, was informative and fun - he totally made fun of Becky's white legs in her shorts! Anyway, we started with a city tour and drove out to the lake country, which was absolutely gorgeous. The family we were with was a little nuts, but it didn't make the trip any less enjoyable. It was a morning well-spent.

For lunch we went to a street festival and had two rotisserie half-chickens and some awesome french fries, which we ate on the street. It was a crazy place, very crowded, and neat to see all the locals having fun. We spent the afternoon walking around, and on our way back to the hotel we saw two guys fighting and it was really scary - especially since it was between a guy with his family and a guy in a biking outfit... At the hotel we took a little nap, then walked back to the old town to eat at a recommended restaurant - it had Indian, Italian, and Austrian cuisine, was teeny and family-run, and the food was amazing. We had chicken curry with rice and a Salzburg sausage plate with kraut and potatoes - and it was all sooooooo good. The sweetened pancake with ice cream and chocolate sauce and Sachertorte we had for dessert were also good, although the Sachertorte was a little weird. We took a little stroll and made our way back to the hotel, where we were almost hit on by some guys in a terrible car...

Tomorrow we see the old town and the fortress, then leave for Munich in the evening. Pictures come next! Miss you!
